Has there ever been a draft pick easier to predict than the Raiders grabbing Darren McFadden at No. 4 today? How do you think that discussion went in the Raiders War Room this morning?
Al Davis: Darren McFadden is a true Raider. Explosive on and off the field, he will return the Raiders to greatness.
Lane Kiffin: Al, I kinda told a lot of people that we were looking into trading the pick. Couldn’t we at least plug our phones back in? I heard Jacksonville wants to give us three good picks for this one.
AD: Kiffin, you are a youngster. You don’t understand what wins games. Players make plays. One game at a time. Commitment to excellence. An Autumn wind is…
LK: Al, why do you always do this? Like when I asked you for a raise, and all you would do is keep repeating, “The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard.” Who the hell is going to block for McFadden, and why do we need 9 running backs?
AD: This team needs an infusion of energy and speed. McFadden can hit the home run. The Raiders must be admired by NFL observers, and feared by their opponents … hey assistant secretary — who is that young man in the visor over there in the corner, trying to plug in the phone?
LK: My name is Lane! Gosh! You hired me, tried to fire me, but didn’t want to pay me to leave so I’m still here. Don’t you remember?
AD: What are you still doing here? And don’t plug in the phones. I refuse to work with any other team in the league; they all have a vendetta against the silver and black. I need no other team. Al Davis is a maverick. Hey Lynn, you know who started the AFL? Al Davis.
LK: My name is Lane! Aaarrghhh! Why doesn’t my cell phone work? Al, did you cut my service again?
AD: Just win, baby.
